Breakfast is usually the the most neglected meal of the day. So here is what we eat for breakfast that is quick and painless. Our go to breakfast is usually a protein shake. The protein powder we use is either Thorne research protein or designs for health protein. Designs for health offers a non denatured whey protein from grass fed cows. This has more nutrients then raw milk. Thorne offers a vegetable based multi nutrient protein powder. These are our two favorites !
We blend protein powder with either coconut or almond milk with a couple spoonfuls of either almond butter or peanut butter. We will also add in either chia seeds or flax seeds. Lastly some kale and ice. Throw it all in a vitamix and drink up.
Another one of our favorites we eat all the time for breakfast are the U be livin smart nutrient dense karmaffins. A little info about these muffins:
They are gluten free, peanut free, tree nut free, 4 grams of fiber, 1 serving of fruit and vegetable per muffin and 9 grams of protein. There is no flour, sugar, oil, salt, yeast, additives or colors.
They come in a variety of flavors: Smoothie berry medley, belgian chocolate, orange cinnamon, and apple cinnamon. Dr. Austins favorite is the orange cinnamon. :
They are so easy to grab and go!
Baked Red Curry Coconut Chicken
1 lb chicken breast
2 tablespoons thai red curry paste
1 cup almond meal
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
Mix the eggs and red curry paste together in a bowl. In another bowl mix together almond meal and coconut mixture.
Coat chicken in egg mixture then coat it in the coconut mixture. Place in baking dish. Once all chicken is coated I placed a couple tablespoons of coconut oil in dish and a little extra red curry paste in dish around chicken to add a little more flavor.
Bake in oven 20-25 min or until chicken is baked through.
Healthy Cauliflower Rice
The main spices I used are turmeric and cumin.
Some health benefits of turmeric :
Improved ability to digest fats
Improves skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
Turmeric also has a healthy amounts of manganese, iron, fiber, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin C and magnesium.
Some health benefits of cumin:
Good source of iron and manganese
High in antioxidants
Helps increase insulin sensitivity
2 heads cauliflower
2 cups cranberries
2 cups cashews chopped
3-4 tablespoons grass fed butter or coconut oil
Red pepper flakes
Pre heat oven to 350
If you have a vitamix you can add about 2 cups of cauliflower and bring to variable 7 to make rice. Don't blend too long or it gets mooshy...
The hard way is to take a cheese grater and grate the cauliflower into rice. It a a great arm workout!
Once cauliflower is rice I placed on a flat baking sheet then added all the ingredients and mixed it in. Cut the butter into small pieces and place all over rice. I seasoned all the cauliflower with turmeric, cumin, red pepper flakes and some sea salt.
Place in oven and bake for about 30 min. At 15 min take out of oven mix rice around to make sure it's being cooked evenly. I also added more of the spices to the dish then cooked another 15 min.
Bullet proof coffee has been getting a lot of attention lately . I have drank coconut oil in my coffee for years but have never tried the whole butter thing and blending it in a blender. A lot of people's first thought is that it is going to make them fatter. Well here is some info on how will actually help with weight loss.
Now I understand calorie restricted diets for a certain goal but overall healthy eating is not led by calorie restriction.
We aren't adding just any kind of better it has to be butter from GRASS FED COWS. Butter from grass fed COWS is high in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) CLA is linked to long term weight management and helps you lower body fat. It also combats:
High Blood Pressure
I can keep going...
Coconut Oil is one the those go to products for everything. Here is just a few reasons why it may be a good idea to ad to your coffee:
Prevents weight gain!! :-)
Improves insulin secretion
Prevents wrinkles ( yes please)
90% saturated fat ( yes we need healthy saturated fats in our diet)
50% lauric acid (this helps prevent high blood pressure and high cholesterol)
Helps regulate thyroid and enzyme functions
So here is the recipe we do:
Per 2 cups hot coffee (organic is best)
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp grass fed butter
1 tbsp creamer
1 pack Stevia
Put in vitamix for 20 sec middle speed. And it comes out foamy and is pretty amazing!!
Eventually you can build your way up to adding more coconut oil and butter to your coffee if you like.
It was filling and we definitely feel more of an energy boost when drinking coffee this way then just plain coffee.
Dark Chocolate Frosting
2 cups dark chocolate chips ( we used whole foods dark chocolate chips 67 % cacao)
2 cups butter (we used grass fed butter (KerryGold)...it made a difference in taste I promise!)
How to Make
In medium saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over medium low heat, stirring frequently so it does not burn.
When melted, we poured into a Pyrex bowl and put in refrigerator for about and hour
Remove from fridge and if you are patient enough allow frosting to get to room temperature. Then you mix the frosting like crazy to a consistency of your liking. Then frost away!
1/2 cup coconut flour
6 eggs, at room temperature
6 Tbs. raw honey
6 Tbs. coconut oil
2 Tbs. coconut milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a muffin tin with liners.
Mix the coconut flour and eggs until smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
Divide evenly between the muffin tins.
Bake about 20 min. You want to be able to have a tooth pick come out clean from the middle of the cupcake.
Let them cool completely
Once frosting is ready frost cupcakes. Makes about 8 cupcakes.
